  • [01] PRESIDENT - EARTH HOUR

    Cyprus joined forces on Thursday with the rest of the world in a global dim out for the "Earth Hour", sending a message for the need to preserve the planet from climate change.

    At 2000 local time (1800 GMT), the Presidential Palace plunged into darkness, in a symbolic gathering organized by the Cyprus Movement of Ecologists and Environmentalists which presented to the President of the Republic Demetris Christofias a set of signatures on climate change, gathered by the Movement.

    ``Everybody must rise to the occasion,`` President Christofias said standing in front of an SOS sign created by candles. ``This message is true. The planet is in danger. We will convey this message tomorrow and we will continue to do so everyday,`` he added.

    The President referred to the messages sent by protesters in Copenhagen, where the UN Conference on Climate Change takes place, expressing hope ``the leaders will heed this message because most of them or several are responsible due to the fact that their countries have been polluting the planet for years.``
